Nicholls State University Reviews
The education program at Nicholls State University truly prepared me for life outside of college. It allowed me to see exactly what it would be like to be a teacher in the real-world because of the amount of hands-on experience you receive. I also loved how I was not a mere number on my campus, but I was a student with hopes and dreams. Advisors will be able to connect with you which truly helped me in the long run.
Nicholls State University is a marvelous university set in the small college town of Thibodaux, LA. It's not the biggest or brightest school you'll encounter, but it more than makes up for it in the sheer heart of the faculty and students who are here. They are an inspiring group who have acted as a second family to me. My experience here has been some of the best of my life. I couldn't have been happier elsewhere.
I chose to attend this university due to the scholarship opportunities they offered. This ended up being the best decision I could have made. I loved that everyone within the department knew who you were, even if they didn't teach you. The professors went out of their way to help you with anything needed. I can't say enough about the amazing faculty and staff.
I loved my college experience at Nicholls State University! All of my professors, although I may have not cared for their teaching methods or personality or even enjoy the class (think two-hour Intro to Economics class at 6 p.m.), were all well-versed in their fields. I did not have a single class, where the professor and/or teacher's assistants did not know above and beyond the information being taught. My program, Culinary Arts, was a wonderful experience and had a vast variety of teacher's from various cooking background to enrich my education. We stayed with the same core teachers throughout the length of the program and developed bonds with them, where they were able to identify our strengths and areas of improvement. The experiences I had will last with me a lifetime and stay me as I further my career.
Nicholls State University offers an excellent Culinary Arts program which allows students to graduate with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Culinary Arts. Students take all basic college entry level courses their first three years in addition to required culinary courses. Students are required to participate in two paid externship. The first externship can be completed during students' sophomore year and the second during the end of students' junior year. The program is very intense and requires students to really apply themselves. Students have the opportunity to participate in local catering events and national competitions. The dynamics of Nicholls State University's campus allows students to quickly become familiar with their surroundings and become acquainted with others. The professors are very personable and caring.
My college was a complete waste of time. Everything I learned at my internships was laughed at by professors and everything I learned at school was laughed at by my employer once I graduated. I wish I would have gotten a 2 year degree and have been done with it.
Nicholls State University has an excellent faculty. Class sizes are moderate. You will love the campus atmosphere. The professors will work with you and help you strengthen your strengths and improve your weaknesses. They will help to you to explore different avenues for careers that you may not have considered. Advisers are readily available to help you, even if you want to change majors. Campus events are fun and often family oriented -- with a small town feel, with a Big Cajun food and fun.
Great school. Loved it! Good academics and a decent student life. Wish the school had more graduate and doctoral programs.
My experience at Nicholls State Univeristy was great. It is the perfect size school, where you feel at home and comfortable talking to your professors. My particular degree, art education, was not one with many students enrolled, so the support for being in two colleges was not always there, but overall a great experience.
